Miu Miu Perfume Review

Miu Miu

Mainstream Monday: Sniffing a Popular Perfume

When Miu Miu was launched, I didn’t want to try it. Why? Because I loved the bottle and ad campaign so much and I didn’t want to be disappointed by the actual product inside the bottle. Reviews started to be published and the opinions were really lukewarm. With so many launches and so little time, I didn’t go out of my way to try Miu Miu.

One day MTA actually ran smoothly and I arrived at a dinner… Continue reading | 4 Comments

Eric Buterbaugh Apollo Hyacinth

 

Seven Days of Eric Buterbaugh*

Eric Buterbaugh is a well-known floral designer based in Los Angeles. Last year, he launched a line of perfumes, Eric Buterbaugh FLORALS, inspired by the medium he knows best – flowers.

Charenton Macerations Asphalt Rainbow EDP Perfume Review

Charenton Macerations Asphalt Rainbow

Rose Week 2016

Charenton Macerations Asphalt Rainbow is a perfume inspired by street art. I enjoyed following the perfume’s development through the brand’s Instagram which showcases various street art, mostly in Manhattan and Brooklyn. It was a bit surreal to see some of the posts and then later see this art in person, like some sort of street art scavenger hunt. We moved to the East Coast rather abruptly, so when I was “liking” images, I never imagined that a… Continue reading | 10 Comments

Rose Week 2016

Even if you are an occasional reader of EauMG, you probably have picked up that I love roses. I love rose fragrances, skincare and even as something to eat. I’m always looking for an excuse to sample and talk about rose perfumes. And this is why every year on February 14th, EauMG has “Rose Week”. This is an entire week where I can indulge my rose obsession.

I’m kicking off this Rose Week with one of those rose perfumes… Continue reading
